      Those are cute little horns. I'm goin' for the "big stuff".Then again
      it depends on my handiwork doesn't it? I just finished a weekend with
      our "Old West" group.I love the Victorian era.I am home sick playin'
      hooky today so I think I do some playing with my hair if I can work
      up the energy.
